Discussion
Today tonight... The next in a series of sharp shortwave troughs will
close off and bowl through the deep south today. Though flow over
the state will become increasingly cyclonic and unstable today, the
environment remains too dry for precip. Model soundings indicate
sufficient moisture and lift ahead of the system to support
scattered diurnal cumulus and jet-level cirrus. Offshore west low-
level flow looks weak enough to allow the atlantic sea breeze
circulation to develop, though it should again remain pinned near
the coast or just offshore. Accordingly, temps will warm nicely into
the mid 80s, even along the coast.

As the closed low lifts towards the mid-atlantic overnight, its
attendant surface front will start to shift down the peninsula. Any
increase in cloud cover or low shower chance across the far north
looks to hold off until after sunrise Friday. Seasonable overnight
lows between 60-63.

Fri... Some moistening will occur ahead of a weak frontal boundary.

Precip water values are forecast to increase near 1.5 inches
across a corridor along and just south of I 4. Daytime heating
combined with cold temperatures aloft (-12c at 500 mb) should
provide enough instability for scattered showers in the
afternoon. Mesoscale boundaries (lake and sea breezes) may
provide enough lift for deep convection so will maintain thunder
mention. Continue to focus best rain chances (40 percent) over
orange, osceola and brevard decreasing to 20 percent across the
far north and south. Any storm that can develop will be capable
of small hail and gusty winds.

Max temps mainly in the mid 80s, except a few upper 80s possible
along the coast south of the CAPE due to offshore flow delaying
the sea breeze and better surface heating. More cloud cover across
the north may limit MAX temps to the lower 80s ESP lake county.

Fri night... Will hold onto a slight chance for showers south and
east of orlando until the front pushes through. A few storms will
be possible over the atlc waters.

Weekend... Behind the cold front, airmass will be drier but not
noticeably cooler which is very typical for frontal passages this
time of year. So a pleasant weekend expected with seasonable max
temps in the low to mid 80s both days with low humidity.

Mon-wed... High pressure to the north is forecast to build over
the area resulting in a breezy east flow developing. Mid level
ridging will build over the area into mid week with subsident
drying so prospect for showers looks too low to mention. Max
temps in the upper 70s near 80 along the coast and low to mid 80s
interior. Min temps will be noticeably milder along the coast, in
the upper 60s and lower 70s, due to the persistent winds off the
ocean.

Aviation
Vfr continues with scattered diurnal cumulus between fl040-fl060 and
jet-level cirrus passing overhead. Sea breeze expected to form this
afternoon and remained close to the coast with winds shifting to the
south (perhaps se) at coastal airfields.

Marine
Today tonight... Offshore winds around 10-15 knots will transition to
the south (southeast near the coast) as the atlantic sea breeze
circulation develops. Winds will transition back offshore overnight
and resume at 10-15 knots. Seas generally 2-3 feet nearshore and 3-4
feet offshore.

Fri... West winds around 10 knots will become south to southwest
and increase near 15 knots over the volusia waters late in the
day. Seas 2 ft just off the coast and 3-4 ft over the open atlc.

Scattered showers should push offshore during the afternoon along
with a few lightning storms.

Sat-mon... Nw winds around 15 knots will occur behind a weak front
early Saturday then the pressure gradient will relax resulting in
improved boating conditions Sat afternoon and continuing thru
Sunday. Seas mainly 2-3 feet this weekend except 4 feet in the
gulf stream sat. Then high pressure will build down the eastern
seaboard Monday with NE winds near 15 knots.

Fire weather
Today... Prevailing warm, dry, and west flow will lead to another
afternoon of minimum relative humidity values between 35 and 40
percent, elevated mixing heights, and very good dispersion. Offshore
flow between 8 to 12 knots should keep the sea breeze pinned along
the coast or just offshore.

Friday... Offshore (w sw) flow will continue and a slight increase
in moisture will keep min rh values above 40 percent. There will
be a slight chance of lightning storms in the afternoon ahead of
an approaching front.

Weekend... Drying behind the weak front should produce min rh
values between 30 and 35 percent Saturday and around 35 percent
Sunday over the interior. Winds 10 mph or less both days.
